Color iPods Only
June 28, 2005
According to iPodlounge, Apple has dropped all black and white full-sized iPods, and is now offering only color on iPods other than the mini and shuffle. A moderate price reduction has also been implemented.
The simplified lineup features a new 20GB color screen model for $299 (the same price as the older monochrome version), a 60GB model for $399 ($50 cheaper), and an updated iPod U2 Special Edition with a color screen for $329 ($20 cheaper). The company has apparently dropped the 30GB iPod photo model, which sold for $349.
Apple also said that starting today iPods will offer Ã¢â‚¬Å“an easy to use Podcast menu, including bookmarking within a Podcast and the ability to display Podcast artwork in colorÃ¢â‚¬Â to coincide with the release of iTunes 4.9.
I’ve been seriously jonesing for a 60 gig iPod for awhile now — I’m glad I held off…
